Motherhood is one of the single-greatest vocations you could be called to. How will you use your authority as a mom to reshape education for your children and grandchildren?
Aly Legge’s story is an inspiring example of empowerment. Her journey of motherhood has looked vastly different depending on the seasons in her life, yet she persevered to give her kids the best. She’s also been a school board member, advocate, and mentor. Join us today as Aly talks about why parents must look to themselves to create change, pushing through challenges and criticisms, and becoming your child’s greatest advocate.
“At the end of the day, it’s really all about action. No one is coming to save us. We need to stop looking at government, or someone else outside of us, outside of our family, to come and save our families. If you’re not willing to sacrifice for your own children, you cannot expect someone else to sacrifice the same way for your children.” — Aly Legge, Director of Empower Moms at Moms For America
